Need for repeatable subsequence specifier in page sequence masters

Dear XSL editors,

Following a discussion online regarding the need to pattern a collection of 
simple-page-master page geometries, I'd like to request a future version of 
XSL-FO consider a new construct to indicate the repetition of an arbitrary 
collection of sub-sequences.


This new wrapper would be a sub-sequence specifier whose children are 
sub-sequence specifiers, as in the following example:

   <new-construct-here maximum-repeats="no-limit|<number>|inherit">
     <single-page-master-reference master-reference="page-1-of-4"/>
     <single-page-master-reference master-reference="page-2-of-4"/>
     <single-page-master-reference master-reference="page-3-of-4"/>
     <single-page-master-reference master-reference="page-4-of-4"/>

I would think that any sub-sequence specifier (including this new 
construct) could be a child of this new construct.

I hope this helps!

............... Ken
